    Im with Lloyds, and when I withdrew money in the US, I never got charged. Just gives you dollars acc to the exchange rate.

    Should be on their site

    I have a Nationwide Current Account and Credit Card

    good rates and 0%/£0 charges when using it abroad, NO OTHER Bank matches that, all the others charge.

    Debit Account is only for emergencies so any amount can be put in from family, I use the NW Credit Card when abroad.

    Not 100% sure about the US, but barclays have charged me in Crete, Cyprus and Ireland so I don't see why they wouldn't charge you.

    i just found out they will charge me 2.5% visa processing fee and an extra 2% if I take out cash. poo. I think I should change banks soon.

    Every bank is the same mate, they all have fees for using your card abroad.

    Try to find a bank of America as with Barclays its a little cheaper.

    as stated by another poster - Nationwide sell their accounts on no fee or low fee debit and credit card use abroad.

    Fair enough, might well depend on how long you've been banking with them though.
